Is it better to have a high insurance premium and low deductible or vice versa? My philosophy is to carry high limits. You should offset the increase in premium by taking a higher deductible.

What type of coverage do consumers often forget? Life insurance is arguably the most important coverage one can purchase. However, it is often the product many do not like to talk about, therefore, it is the product many procrastinate on. Oftentimes, people have the false sense of security that what they have through their employer is enough.

What are the most important factors in choosing life insurance? You need to take a thorough look into coverage amounts needed. That number will most likely increase over time, especially when there are new additions to the family. A $100,000 policy just is not enough anymore.
